We keep heading south in our Portfolio of the Week run, leaving the U.S. behind and stopping in Mexico, to present you the work of infographic designer Jesús Miguel Ulloa Maciel, who’s working at the graphics department of La Razón newspaper
Miguel has a degree in Graphic Design, and in the second year of his career he started working at the newspaper Noroeste. For three years, he created infographics for soft news sections such as music shows, social, fashion, health, cars, and many other topics. In 2012, he received a proposal to join the team at one of Mexico’s top newspapers, La Razón, where he found what’s like to work in the area of hard news. This is where he started developing more complex infographics and visual reports.
As far as the importance of visual journalism, Miguel left his opinion: “I think infographics are the best way to convey information in a clear, precise and striking form, and I believe that, although the weight of the print media is declining, they can even become a factor to reopen that market.”
Here are the works Miguel shared with us:
